THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Folks in Thomasville came out to honor our veterans Thursday morning.

Southwest Georgia Technical College hosted their Veteran's Day Celebration, where veterans were able to share personal stories from their service.

Chief of Police Troy Rich spoke to veterans and other members of the college about his three years serving our country.

He said his time overseas prepared him for his role in the Thomasville community.

Rich said, “High degree of discipline.  It shows commitment, dedication, honor, respect.  And those are all qualities of a police officer.”

The event ended with a tree planting ceremony, in honor of the men and women who fought and are currently fighting for our country.
